    PA / NJ concealment issue ????

    Hopefully someone can give me an answer once and for all.
    My fiancee and I have now both applied for our LTCF in the state of Pennsylviania as we are both residents here. I understand most if not all of the carry laws and reprocity issues with the states around me.

    My soon to be wife works in NJ however. I know she cant carry in NJ because of their laws, so what would she have to do if she had her firearm on her?
    I am thinking a lock box in the truck (between or under the front seats) for the pistol and put the clip in the glove box. What if she added to this a lock through the slide and magazine well is her idea.
    Anyone????

    I can't imagine possessing a legal firearm in New Jersey and not being arrested for simply thinking about one.

    The absolute best thing is to leave it at her current residence and not even bring it out and not take it when she goes to work.

    You also may try Handgunlaw.us and see what rules and restrictions are posted there as well, but not having a firearm in New Jersey is best. Unless you are a criminal and don't care what New Jersey thinks but I don't think that applies to you.

    As it is not legal to poses the handgun at her final destination (NJ) the federal "through passage" law won't protect her. It will surely mean an arrest and confiscation of the firearm. DON'T DO IT!

    Yeah basically don't bring a gun with her when she works, transport or other wise. Won't turn out well if on the off chance she gets stopped.

    As the others have said...don't let her do it!
    It's a 5-7 year mandatory prison sentence for being in possession of a handgun (loaded or unloaded) for non-residents unless traveling through the state.
    Even Jersey residents who have a State of NJ Firearms Purchaser Identifcation Card...can only transport handguns unloaded, locked in trunk, with the ammo in a separate case...
    and then only to and from the range/gun shop/shooting event...or if moving to a new residence.
    Trust me on this...I'm a former NJ resident.

    Someone else mentioned Handgunlaw.us, I encourage you to go there and check it out. We have all seen too many posts concerning people that have been arrested in NJ for having a firearm in their possession.

    If she has her gun with her anywhere in the vehicle, and she is not traveling through NJ, she will more likely than not, be arrested for unlawful possession of a firearm (or something similiar). If she has hollow point rounds, that will probably add to the charges. See Handgunlaw.us for reference.

    Her only option to carry to/from work is to work in PA or DE

    ^^^^^^^^ That about sums it up, working in NJ sucks.
